Updates Progress to Become Fully Reporting

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - November 29, 2007) - Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DGRI), a developer and operator of proven gold mines and a regional mill in North America, today announced that Central Mining Services, Inc., a subsidiary of American International Group, Inc., has completed an onsite review of the company's safety policies and procedures. The report found the company met and exceeded "best practices" for mining companies.

Dan Hollis, Chief Executive Officer of Dutch Gold Resources, stated, "We are committed to providing a safe work environment for our team and this favorable report from AIG's Risk Management consultants further illustrates that our safety officers are doing a commendable job. The onsite review also critically reviewed the plant infrastructure and further validates the heavy investments we have made in our state-of-the art mill, which provides us tremendous capacity as we plan to increase our production at the Benton Mine, open the Gold Bug mine in 2008 and begin to examine acquisition candidates that leverage our infrastructure and advanced processing capabilities."

Wes King, the Company's risk management consultant who retained Central Mining Services, Inc., added, "Dutch Mining is to be congratulated on their recent workers compensation loss control survey. The report highlighted management's commitment to safety and their experience in mining and milling operations. It is very commendable to receive such a positive loss control report especially in an industry that insurance companies generally regard as hazardous."

Separately, Mr. Hollis commented on the progress of the company's plan to regain reporting compliance: "There have been several unanticipated delays as we near completion of our filings with the SEC. Nevertheless, we have been very thorough and diligent in preparing our filings, and anticipate completing these filings before year-end."
